Chris Jericho Says He’s Having Fun Not Working For Vince, Open To More US Shows

Published

ALL IN Chris Jericho

It’s been nearly two weeks now, but the wrestling world is still abuzz after IWGP Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho’s surprise appearance at All In on September 1st when he dressed up as Pentagon Jr. and attacked Kenny Omega.

The appearance naturally led to more talk about the door being more open than ever for Jericho to work for other companies, especially since he said in months past he wouldn’t work in the United States out of respect for Vince McMahon. Of course, ‘Y2J’ has been rumored to eventually work with IMPACT Wrestling, but as for his stance on working any events moving forward, Jericho had the following to say about working the ROH/NJPW G1 Supercard next April on the most recent edition of Busted Open Radio on SiriusXM:

“There is a whole market now for…you know, hardcore wrestling fans or maybe not even hardcore anymore. There’s a whole strain of fans of wrestling that are excited about all of these other options. I mean…you know, I didn’t think there was any chance I’d be doing All In, but at this point in time sure, there’s a chance. If there’s a match that’s presented to me that’s interesting, if I’m free like, why not? Like, I’m really kind of enjoying this free agency and realizing, ‘Why do I have to just keep it in Japan?’. You know, what if I do want to do more stuff at this stage and you know, not really worrying about what anybody thinks. At this point in time, I think for the first time in my career, in 28 years, October 2nd will be 28 years…I’m kind of completely in control and it’s fun. You know?

I really enjoy not having to run my ideas, that I know are gonna work, through a committee of two or three people or having to wait you know, three hours in front of a door to go pitch it to one guy and hope that he likes it. You know, at this point in time we’re all pros and we know what works and what doesn’t work…and if we’re not sure we can ask other guys and kind of work together. But, in WWE when you work there, one again, you gotta go with whatever it is he wants to go with and you know, that’s fine.

When you work for Vince it’s the way it is, but it’s fun to not work for Vince right now and have some of these other ideas that you kind of explore. It’s (inaudible) working for WWE. Which is fine if you’re working there, get ready for it and deal with it, but right now it’s fun not having to deal with that so we’ll have to see. I mean, nobody’s called me, either way to work there or not work there. I’m on tour with Fozzy until mid-December and that’s the end of the Judas Rising Tour. Then you know, we go back to songwriting, back to recording and in that time is usually when I go back to the WWE, but this time maybe there’s other places I’ll go back to other than WWE.”

Sonoran Championship Wrestling BATTLE|LINES Results (9/21/18)

Published

on

SCW Battle Lines

SCW (Sonoran Championship Wrestling) returned to The World Famous Nile Theater on Friday night, September 21, for BATTLE|LINES! Tensions were high all night, and the rowdy crowd in attendance were treated so some amazing action.

By the end of the night we had a new (but reluctant) tag team, fans begging for more EJ-Calder, one pissed off challenger, and the revelation of perhaps the strongest force ever to hit SCW…

Full results:

Navajo Warrior pinned Alex Salyers
Salyers reminded everyone of the reasons he asked for “the biggest, baddest, and most respected man in Arizona,” and then promptly punched him in the face. The legendary competitor proved too much in the end.

SBR & Cole Wright (with Travis Lee) beat Awesome Andy & Aguila
Two brand new teams in SCW brought the action early and never stopped, bringing the fans to their feet on multiple occasions. In the end, Travis sprayed Andy with Body Spray, leading his team to victory. After the match it was obvious that SBR & Cole had no clue what Travis was up to.

The Heat Seat with Pete The Heat and special guest Sergio Vega
Pete The Heat welcomed Sergio Vega, who explained that he was attacked at the border on his way to August’s Big Trouble In Little Mesa. He didn’t see the attacker, but did notice that Jay Garland was wearing a Sergio Vega shirt when he left the building with Thugnificent that night. The Hawaiian Lion entered the ring to remind Sergio to focus on their match later in the evening, and that the Arizona legend fully intended on ending the year-plus reign of the champion.

SOS (with June Jackson) pinned Morgan (with Adrenalyn) in a No Disqualification Match
June Jackson announced that she would not be participating in the match, but “supervising” as her best friend, SOS, battled Morgan instead. Morgan didn’t come alone, bringing back-up on the form of Adrenalyn! All four women battled throughout The Nile, but in the end a (legal) chairshot from SOS allowed her to score the pin after June blasted Adrenalyn with a tire iron.

EJ Sparks and Calder McColl battled to a time limit draw
In another first time ever encounter, EJ and Calder brought the fight in a big way, neither letting up for the duration of the match. Calder connected with an Air Raid Crash, but EJ kicked out of the pinfall attempt right before time expired. Calder was frustrated, but the two men embraced to end a match that fans are already asking to see again.

Toom E Guci addressed the crowd
SCW co-owner and general manager Toom E Guci announced that on October 19, we will celebrate two years of Sonoran Championship Wrestling  at Run The Gauntlet. Competitors will compete in the biggest Gauntlet ever, spanning the entire evening, and the winner will have the ability to make any match they choose. Toom revealed that the first match of Run The Gauntlet.

SCW Tag Team Champions Jay Garland & The MITH and Impulse Champion Thugnificent fought The Brothers Of Wrestling (Evan Daniels & R-Three) and LJ Ramos to a no-contest
Toom E Guci got the answers he was seeking when these six men jumped into action. LJ Ramos was (seemingly) injured during the match, and was rendered unable to continue and helped to the back. The 3-on-2 advantage proved to be too much for the BOW, and when all hope was lost LJ returned to the ring! Once LJ was tagged in, he stood face-to-face with The Man In The Hood, but turned around and attacked Evan Daniels! Garland, Thugnificent, MITH, and Ramos maintained a 4-on-2 advantage until EJ Sparks ran to confront the four men. Before EJ could do anything, June Jackson snuck in and hit EJ with a low blow, leading to a 5-on-1 attack on the fan favorite. Jay Garland took the mic and revealed that Genesys was reformed, much to the dismay of Toom E Guci.

SCW Heavyweight Champion Sergio Vega pinned The Hawaiian Lion to retain his championship
After defeating Ricky Mandel to earn this championship opportunity, The Hawaiian Lion took the fight to the champion, but there was no backing down for Sergio Vega. Lion connected with an Axe Bomber late in the match, but was slow to cover. Sergio kicked out, but Lion immediately latched onto a Coquina Clutch. Sergio got to the ropes multiple times, and referee Scott Johnson had to pull Lion off of Sergio. Lion protested, but that gave Sergio the opening he needed to score the victor. Lion snapped after the match, taking out his frustrations on the champion and refusing to release the Clutch. The Navajo Warrior hit the ring to finally break Lion from the hold, restraining him before he could do more damage to the champion, the official, and potentially his own career.

Sonoran Championship Wrestling returns to The Nile Theater on Friday, October 19, 2018 for Run The Gauntlet! Don’t miss this night of non-stop action as the SCW roster attempts to Run The Gauntlet from start to finish.
